This is Clerodendrum sp, but these are not flowers. The flowers
(corollas) have fallen off and what remains is the persistent coloured
calyx (green in flowering stage) which takes over the function of the
corolla to attract birds to the berries ( one such black berry can be
seen ) for dispersal. Regards

The plant is Clerodendrum indicum for sure. Besides Shrikant Ji is
right. these are not flowers and are actually persistant calyx lobes.
the flowers in this species are white coloured and with long narrow
corolla tubes which sort of make them heavy to stay too long as flower
and fall off very early.
